Patient Experience Matters

Interpreter and Translation Services

At the RUH:

  • we provide foreign language and BSL interpreter services for patient and carers' with language and communication needs to ensure they receive the same quality of healthcare all other patients
  • when a patient or their carer needs an interpreter it does not delay their appointment or admission
  • patients have a personalised approach to their language and communication requirements recognising that "one size does not fit all"
  • staff to know how to book interpreters

If you or your carer needs an interpreter because English is not your first language or you are Deaf please contact the ward, clinic or department you are visiting as soon as possible.
